Franklinia axillaris: Common Names Gordonia or Fried Egg Plant.



Dichorisandra thyrsiflora : Common Name Blue Ginger



Pachystachys lutea: Common names Golden Candles or Shrimp Plant



Globba winitii.: Common Name Dancing Lady that's two plants I know by that common name Question



Amaranthus tricolour: Common Name Joseph's Coat.



Strelitzia Yellow



Looks like the Costus productus I grow



Not quite sure if the names are right or the spelling, as most plants at the Park had no names on them.
I had to look everything up in a book first

All so pretty. I would love to get pachystachys here... they are easy to grow but need too much water... actually love to have most of them. That Globba is the same as the one I liked on Gwen's post though the colour looks slightly different.

I agree Gail my neighbour had them growing but never watered them much so they died..

I have some interesting photos for you I cannot remember the name of the plant I will go back to the old GD now and look while I remember..
